  1. I like all of the books that Tammy would bring on a deserted island. By the Book keeps reminding me of favorite books that I have read and books that I need to read.

  2. Thanks for sharing! I like your ideas of what to recommend to children.

  3. It is such a delight to know you! You have a wonderful personality and I really like your book choices

  4. Of your favorites I would like to just say I loved “Out of My Mind”. Wonder has been such a big hit and when kids tell me how much they loved Wonder, I always suggest the read Out of My Mind. Thanks for sharing. This has been so fun learning about each other and discussing books.
